This is probably one of the most common questions we get asked.
Medical aesthetics is a multi-billion-dollar industry that’s expected to see continued growth. One of the reasons many doctors, nurses and other medical professionals seek additional training at a medical aesthetics school is to add an additional revenue stream to their practice.
Treatments like Botox are relatively quick as they can be completed in just a short office visit or during a lunch break. But overall, medical aesthetic treatments are cash-based procedures, meaning insurance will not cover the treatments.
How Much Revenue Can I Expect?
Earlier this year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) published the national average for some of the most in-demand minimally invasive procedures. We took those averages and calculated the potential revenue after one hour.
|TREATMENT||DURATION||AVERAGE COST||POTENTIAL REVENUE
IN 1 HOUR
|Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)||30 mins||$433||$866|
|Laser Hair Removal||30 mins||$306||$612|
|Botulinum Type A
(Botox, Dysport, etc.)
(Juvederm, Restylane, etc.)
|Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)||30 mins||$650||$1,300|
